How did you first get into opening an online store?
I’m a dreamer. Unashamedly. I dream big and I’m not afraid to have a go. So one day back in around August/September 2016 I decided this was something I wanted to do. I started firing off emails to some of my favourite brands to see if they were interested in going into business with me. The response I had was phenomenal and it just spurred me on.
I launched mikoandmollie.com in October 2016 and four weeks later Sass & Bide came on board. Since then, my brand mix has just grown and grown and I could not be prouder of the range we stock or the relationships I have with all of my suppliers. We’re all about supporting the incredible design talent we have in Australia, showcasing them to the world and making women feel great about themselves with everything, from their new outfit to the way we provided it to them. So many of our customers become our friends and it’s just such a beautiful community to be a part of. I’m so grateful for it every day.
How would you summarise Miko + Mollie?
Aesthetically, Miko + Mollie is unique, bold, unashamed of who it is and celebratory of all the beauty that surrounds it!
Philosophically, Miko + Mollie has a purpose so much bigger than bringing the best in Australian designer fashion to the world, we inspire our customers with our bold styling and try to have a positive impact on their days. We’re a store of women standing here with and for other women. Fashion is a powerful art. For some people this is how we express ourselves and how we motivate ourselves. It’s something that gives us joy, and that’s what life is about. We’re so privileged at Miko + Mollie to work among the incredible design talents of Australia and to give women that little extra something that they need when the going is tough, and even when it’s not. To help them live their best lives through all of these moments.
